Baby Mum Gift!!!

So for my Sister in Laws last baby. "Sofia"- see pics below..
I decided not to buy her a gift but to make her one. This was her last baby and I wanted to make it special.

I've already made a diaper cake for her last baby, so i decided to make a door mum..

I knew this could get expensive. So i made sure to buy EVERYTHING half off. I already had some of the ribbon and glue gun, staples,and rhinestones.. So all I had to buy was the stuff to put ON the mum. Here is what I used...
What I used:
Stork Wind Sock 4.99- not half off
Pink Ribbon with polka dots 2.50
Pink shiny bead necklaces 2.99
Sweet Dreams & Its a girl signs 3.00 for both
Booties, Safety Pins 2.00 for both
Pacifiers 1.99 not on sale
Pink Baby Bottle 0.99cents
White Bow- 0.99
braided ribbon- 2.00 for both
cardboard and white fabric to cover (behind storks head for stability)
Pink Glitter stickers - not pictured. for name and weight.

I used cardboard to trace the storks body for stability and wrapped with white fabric so you wouldnt see the brown. I stapled the STORK windsock First since I wanted to work around him.
I then added all the ribbon and hung the small items off of the necklaces and stapled under the stork.
I made small bows to go on the small signs for more color. When i was done hanging and placing everything where I wanted I just super glued feathers around the Bow for more color! Here it is BEFORE the feathers and stickers

On the day of the birth I went and got Pink Glitter stickers to put name, birth day and weight on the ribbon.
Here is the after picture!

It was fairly easy and it only cost me 30.00 .
When I took it to the hospital, the nurses fell in love with it! She was very happy when she saw it and it now hangs on the babys door at home. In the end, I think it was worth it!
Dont be afraid to Give it a try and be sure to let me know how they turn out!!
Have a good weekend!!
